Happy Birthday Momma!

Posted on by 5 comments

Today is my Momma’s 29th Birthday.  Teasing!  She’s 76.  That would be kinda cool though, that would mean I would get a do-over.  But, then again so would she and would I be here?  I’ll just stick with things the way they are now that I think about it.

Although, I would like to trade her Alzheimer’s in.  It’s something I wouldn’t wish anyone to go through.  Ever.  She handles it better than all of us.  Since she got diagnosed with it last Aug, never once, not one time, has she said “Oh, woe is me.”  Her concern has always been for Dad, and all of us and what she feels she is putting us through.  My Momma’s a trooper!  I could only hope that if I ever have to go through something like this, I do it with the grace my Momma is doing it with.

Now, I’ll share some photos with you of my Momma.  These are some of my favorites.




Look at Momma raising that dress up and showing some leg! Ha

Poo, Mom, and Daddy O. I love this picture. They are at the Grand Canyon

Mom on her horse Czar. She rode him all the time by herself, and loved this horse. She still talks about him all the time. He ran away with her once and her Dad jumped bareback on another horse and came and saved her.

Mom, I love those Shirley Temple curls!
